Honda Civic Service Manual: Airbag and Tensioner Disposal - in the Vehicle ('13-'14)

Honda Civic Service Manual / Body / Restraints / Secondary / Airbag and Tensioner Disposal - in the Vehicle ('13-'14)

Before scrapping any front airbags, side airbags, side curtain airbags, driver's seat belt outer lap tensioner, or front seat belt tensioners (including those in a whole vehicle to be scrapped), the part(s) must be deployed. If the vehicle is still within the warranty period, the Honda District Parts and Service Manager must give approval and/or special instruction before deploying the part(s). Only after the part(s) have been deployed (as the result of vehicle collision, for example), can they be scrapped. If the parts appear intact (not deployed), treat them with extreme caution. Follow this procedure.

1. Airbag and Tensioner - Dispose

If an SRS equipped vehicle is to be entirely scrapped, its front airbags, side airbags, side curtain airbags, driver's seat belt outer lap tensioner, and front seat belt tensioners should be deployed while still in the vehicle. These parts should not be considered as salvageable parts and should never be installed in another vehicle.

Deploying Airbags in the Vehicle

1.

Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0). Do the battery terminal disconnection procedure, then wait at least 3 minutes before starting work.

2.

Confirm that each front airbag, side airbag, side curtain airbag, driver's seat belt outer lap tensioner, or front seat belt tensioner is securely mounted.

3.

Confirm that the deployment tool is functioning properly by following the check procedure on the tool label.

21.

Remove the B-pillar lower trim.

22.

Disconnect the driver's seat belt outer lap tensioner connector (A) on the floor wire harness.

23.

Cut off each connector and strip the ends of the wires. To prevent inflators from being deployed unexpectedly, twist each pair of wires coming from each inflator to have each inflator short-circuited.

24.

Select one pair of wires and untwist the wires. Clip an alligator clip (A) to each end of the wires, so that the inflator is ready to be deployed.

NOTE:

Place the deployment tool at least 10 m (33 ft) away from the vehicle.

Since the driver’s and front passenger’s airbags have dual inflators, make sure to twist the correct pair of wires to have each inflator short-circuited.

2-door USA and Canada models: The front passenger seat belt has two inflators. The one is in the tensioner and the other one is in the built-in selectable energy absorption device. Make sure to deploy both inflators before disposing the front passenger seat belt.

25.

Connect a 12 volt battery to the tool.

If the green light on the tool comes on, the igniter circuit is defective and cannot deploy the component. Go to Disposal of Damaged Components.

If the red light on the tool comes on, the component is ready to be deployed.

26.

Push the tool's deployment switch. The airbags and tensioners should deploy (deployment is both highly audible and visible: A loud noise and rapid inflation of the bag, followed by slow deflation).

If the components deploy and the green light on the tool comes on, continue with this procedure.

If a component does not deploy, and the green light comes on, its igniter is defective. Go to Disposal of Damaged Components.

During deployment, the airbags can become hot enough to burn you. Wait for 30 minutes after deployment before touching the airbags.

27.

Dispose of the complete airbag or tensioner. No part of it can be reused. Place it in a sturdy plastic bag (A), and seal it securely. Dispose of the deployed airbag according to your local regulations.
